Years ago, I took a leap of faith and decided to start my own business. One of the best parts of running this business is having the privilege of being able to meet, and walk alongside, other entrepreneurs and creatives! While it’s so wonderful to work with clients and to work on projects you’re passionate about, it’s important to keep your own business top of mind, as well.

If you’re in any creative industry, you know that first impressions are everything. It’s extremely important that your website and social content capture what makes you special and clearly convey what it is that you do. Clients want to see you in action. Let me help you by capturing you doing what you do best!

You put the hard work in day-in and day-out, but your clients don’t necessarily get to witness all of the behind-the-scenes challenges and triumphs. It’s so important to be able to represent yourself well on your website and on your social media. Let clients get to know you and what you offer in a way that sheds the best possible light on your brand.

Why branding photography is important

Your brand isn’t stuffy, and your brand photos shouldn’t be either. My sessions are focused on bringing your brand to life through lifestyle imagery and professional headshots that capture you at your most authentic. You’ll have all of the visual content you need to share with your audience on your website and in order to stand out on social media.

What I offer and how you can use your branded photos to your advantage

My nerdy love of marketing aside, I know on a deep level how important it is to connect with your audience. Business owners are regularly wearing all of the hats and juggling a number of different tasks and projects for their business. I want to help you showcase your brand in a way that truly captures what makes you the best fit for your clients.

I had my branding shoot with Jontell and she was amazing!! Extremely patient, professional, and creative. She incorporated my business branding style and personal elements into my shoot. I received so many high quality images. Plus she helped me find a location for the shoot!! I highly recommend her for ALL photography needs.

MY Clients HAVE THE KINDEST THINGS TO SAY

Jontell was so attentive to ALL the details, I loved it! She was so wonderful to work with, conversation was great so that the shoot didn't just feel like a transaction. She listened to what I wanted to capture in my lifestyle shoot and gave great feedback on ideas so that I felt heard but still took control of the shoot to make sure I have pictures that truly look how I want them to look and express who I am.

As a fellow wedding photographer, I knew I could trust Jontell to provide the clean and joyful images I was looking for in my brand. She's also incredibly encouraging and patient throughout the whole process. I was so unsure about what I wanted, but she helped guide me through everything from outfits and props to locations and posing. I highly recommend working with Jontell if you get the chance. It'll surely be an amazing investment for your business
